Xray: feature name blank in exported Cucumber .feature files

We are using Xray plugin for JIRA for managing our automated tests for Cucumber. When exporting the .feature-files from Xray, the feature name is blank. Like in this example:

    Scenario: Just as test scenario
        Given User is on the homepage
        When User clicks the login button
        Then the test is a success
In the plugin documentation it is stated, that the feature name is taken from the requirement issue summary connected with this test. I assume since we do not use requirement issues for our tests, there is no summary that can be used as feature name?
How can Xray be configured, so that the feature name is based for example on the test summary and exported properly?

Hi @majchman,

that behaviour is currently hard-coded, so it takes the summary from the "requirement" issue.

Having it taken from the test summary I guess it wouldn't work, since you may be exporting multiple tests at the same time, but this has to be properly evaluated. I would ask you to open an improvement request in our project in JIRA, detailing the exact behavior, so it can be analyzed and we also see feedback from other users.

Please use Xray's service desk so we can properly track and give you on time feedback.
